One of the great things about the wooden cameras is that they can look absolutely awful as long as the bellows are light tight, it has a good ground glass, and everything locks down tight and correctly. They're really resilient. I'm going to look for a 2D myself in six months or so to replace the Burke & James I have, but I won't bother restoring the wood. The old cameras tell a story and I kind of like the rougher-around-the-edges look.
